Will The Book of Love work its magic on Belle and Finn?

Belle Farthingale knows something is wrong in the family business and is worried her father has gotten in over his head. She needs Finn Brayden’s help to get him out of trouble, but after their humiliating encounter at Lady Dayne’s tea party, will he ever speak to her again?

Finn Brayden has one rule: never mix business with pleasure. But that rule is about to be shot to bits by the luscious Belle Farthingale. There’s something about her that he can’t resist. She gets his heart thrumming and senses reeling. When she comes to him seeking help, why does he suddenly feel he’s the one in need of protection? Belle is very persuasive, and he’s in danger of falling in love.


Belle Farthingale is the "nose" in her family's perfume business. At the moment though, she and her sister have been sent to their uncle's house in London to enjiy the season and maybe find husbands.  Belle knows that's never going to happen for her because of her weakness.  That's fine for her because she loves making the perfumes.
Finn Brayden comes from a family of big strong men and he is a well respected financial advisor. When a young lady he rescued a few months, ago comes to him for help his protective instinct kicks into high gear.  
A really fun story with fabulous characters.  There is a villian threatening our heroine's family.  Can our hero fix it??  It's very emotional at times because of our heroine's doubts. 
This is part of a fabulous series that should be read in order, but each book can be read alone.  
Great fun.


Meara Platt is happily married to her Russell Crowe look-alike husband, and they have two terrific children. She lives in one of the many great towns on Long Island, New York, and loves it, except for the traffic. She has traveled extensively, occasionally lectures and finds time to write. Her favorite place in all the world is England’s Lake District, which may not come as a surprise since many of her stories are set in that idyllic landscape, including her Romance Writers of America Golden Heart award winning story.
